Trainee Clinical Psychologist
I am currently in my third year of Clinical Psychology training. My final specialist placement is in the Attach Team in Oxfordshire, which supports looked after children and their foster/adoptive families.
Prior to clinical training, I worked as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner in an Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies Service. Prior to this role I worked as an Assistant Psychologist in a Specialist Eating Disorder Service. In both roles I delivered Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, working collaboratively with individuals to reduce their distress and improve their wellbeing.
I have also previously worked as a Research Assistant on two randomised controlled trials. The first investigating mindfulness-based cognitive behavioural therapy in comparison with maintenance anti-depressant medication to prevent depressive relapse in recurrent depression. The second investigating child development outcomes using cognitive behavioural therapy and video-feedback therapy in the context of maternal post-natal depression.
